Is this box good enough to upgrade to Kodi 17.1 and fast enough to handle it or do I need a box with more memory and more speed. If so I'd like something that will be good enough for many more upgrades .

Those boxes usually only run Android 4.4, which is not enough for the latest Kodi (requires 5.0 at least).
AMLogic S8xx boxes are perfectly capable to run Kodi 17.x - yes even Android 4.4.x ones.

Please read this POST and follow the link for an Android 4.4.x option.

But if you really want to see what Kodi Krypton is like on older Hardware, install LibreELEC Kodi Krypton on to a Samsung EVO, Sandisk or Lexar 300x Class 10 U1 microSDHC card.
This can even be a Dual Boot - LibreELEC / Android setup. LibreELEC Kodi will run at speed and run well.
